For anyone not interested in making there own. PineRidge burners supplies ribbon burners. A little on the high side compared to the DIY path but quality nonetheless. 

I have added them under Forge Suppliers

Very helpful post.  Tyvm!  I would like to put in a vote for the Oregon grinder.   http://www.ebaystores.com/oregonblademaker/Belt-Grinders-/_i.html?_trksid=p4634.c0.m322&_fsub=9689989013&_sid=1307333723  .  That is what I bought and love it.  Another list that might be helpful is a list of new power hammer makers.  Just a thought.  Great post!

Oregon Blademaker is was rebranded to Origin Blademaker, which is in the listing under grinders.  i have one of his grinders, and I love it.  I recently bought the surface grinder attachment he sells, and I am quite happy with it.

As far as hammers, I have wanted to add more blacksmithing resources, and that wouldn't be a bad addition to the list.  Thanks, I'm glad the list is helpful!
